    Rate my build!

    Looks good to me, you can get a nice 750 for a few bucks more. For 100$ you could get an 850W gold/platinum PSU, but you don't need to go that fancy either

    New Board New Build

    should be a real nice system, 2x8gb ddr4 3200 is about the best bang for the buck for performance/cost Why is your system down? A lot of times it's just a dead power supply...
  3. Well all of these speculative risks make me glad that my work PC is a gulftown xeon PC and my gaming-only is the 8700K! Obviously new CPUs smoke this older architecture, but I haven't had any issues with it yet. LGA1366 was surprisingly resilient if you set it up properly.

    Sorta interesting build (Images)

    nice, clean, and simple. I like it. What is the goal of having dual pcs with KVM, one for work and one for play? Im assuming that since one is low power and one high

    First new build since the c2q

    Looking good. It isn't too hard to pull fan impellers from the hub if you wanted to dye or paint them. Painting them *can* throw them off balance but its not too hard to rebalance them, and you were planning on swapping them anyway. Thought I would suggest that since you are budget motivated also you can use split wire loom if you want to hide the wires better without sleeving the whole thing.

    someone tried to hack my Steam

    Looks legit I never understand why they don't try to pass it through a word processor, maybe have someone fluent proof read it? Regards, Our Company. There are a lot of hackers and the like in Belarus. Could be you are one of the victims in the many hacked databases and they used that info at steam, or you might have some malware, a trojan, or some other bad stuff on your end... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_data_breaches That is just a partial list, many others have been hacked too..
  7. Only for Prime. I can run cinebench all day at 1.275v LOL! Prime is tough on them that's for sure! 1.275v is much better

    Water Cooling PETG Tubing need help

    Where did you get the tubing, and what does the rest of your setup look like?
  9. Looks like you got a "Potato" chip... (an MSI joke about the voltage) Nice review Frank!
  10. neat, would like to see duck h unt and a laser gun though

    Corsair 900d with 5 radiators

    Same boat as Waco, distilled and silver coils, but I used some swiftech mix i had laying around for UV green reactivity.

    Corsair 900d with 5 radiators

    What are you cooling? Separate loops are good when you want to cool CPU and GPUs separately to reduce heat to each component. If the card or cards wont be water cooled then you will be way overkill with that many radiators, a thick 120mm or any dual rad can handle just a CPU. So in essence, we need more info
  13. looks like it would be great for case modders / windows, for people who don't go with full loops

    How long should my Current Build Last?

    You should be able to pump the 8350 up to at least 4.6ghz for more performance. 5 if you really try, that sabertooth is a decent motherboard. That antec is decent, but a single 120mm rad will be pretty warm and limit your overclocking. Might want to look into a double AIO or build your own. I've done some pretty cheap water cooling in my past everything else is looking good. I'm still rocking LGA 1366 since about 2009 so longevity is possible with the right platform. Not that manufacturers are pushing for that anymore. And of course I chose to upgrade parts here and there. Generally it is the graphics card you will have to upgrade down the line
  15. Just don't remove it from the video card while it is on. Be careful not to bend/bump the video card while it is on too. Bigger cards have more problems with this. Some are already sagging from their weight.
  16. Would of liked to see a newer B&W game...

    Steam Making Changes to Game Bundles

    about time. many times I've skipped them due to owning partials already

    Official GUNS Thread --

    Fixed the disconnector spring. Some people tried telling me it was the gremlin, but the gun cycled fine upside down . Century was useless. Decided while I was tearing it apart, might as well replace the beaver barf handle, hand guard, and heat shield cover with these beauties. Some fitting required on the new heat shield and a tiny bit on the fore grip, but it was easy. versus the original (except mine has the folding stock)
  19. Windows 10, Adware edition. between this and the lock screen ads... Wow

    Case Fans on TOP pull air in?

    dust comes with airflow. All pushing in or out would create pressure/flow issues, unless you have vents. Get filters if you really want to keep dust out, but you will have to clean the filters just as you have to clean the components otherwise.

    Case Fans on TOP pull air in?

    you can do either just fine. I have had to do it on some cases. Blowing the radiator heat into the case isn't as bad as you'd think, as long as you get it out quickly. I have done as you said, when the exhaust temperature is still lower than the vrms on the motherboard for example, where it is easier than adding more fans. And then you get the direct airflow rather than passive. Heat dump is heat dump nonetheless. It would be more efficient for the whole system if the exhaust was pumped straight out right away. It is probably more efficient to have the heat rise up and out since that is its nature too. But conversely anything you are cooling with the radiators will do best with the coolest intake air possible, running warm system air through will raise the loop temperatures. (ambient room temperatures are going to be lower than ambient case temperatures) Another option is an external radiator mount. I have done that as well, where the plumbing is ran through the case, along with cables for the fans. All intake and exhaust skips the case, so you get the best of both worlds. Any way you go, it will work. Some options are more efficient than others but I think you'd be happy nonetheless. You can always try it and see what you think

    Official GUNS Thread --

    Yeah S&W Governor or Taurus Judge both do multiple 45-cal rounds. Seem pretty neat, I like the idea behind multi-caliber guns. Just dont own any yet. Another I've been eyeballing is the 9mm/357 ruger blackhawk convertible, it can do 38 special too. But 9mm might be too small for accuracy, and I have plenty of pistols in 9 already recently fixed my vz58, had a bad disconnector spring in the trigger. Broke in half. After maybe two mags at the range. Thanks CAI

    Advice for new build for Fiance - $1000

    So do you really want to spend 1000? It doesn't take much of a computer for those games at 1080p, could save some $ and still have more than enough computer.

    where do you begin with modding?

    Shims and things of that nature will be your friend. Assuming this is for a wood desk, I would lay the motherboard on the surface you want it mounted, use a pen to mark the holes, then install motherboard standoffs by drilling holes slightly smaller than the threads, add glue. I have seen standoffs that are longer on the threaded end, or your best bet is to get 6-32 couplers and screws, drill holes clean through the wood and install the screws from the backside into the coupler. Makes it much more solid but will cost more. A window box... Plexiglas or acrylic, or another plastic. Look up how they make fish tanks, or how to bend the materials. It would be easier to make a wood or plastic frame and put flat pieces in it.

    Help to choose a Gaming PC

    There are no options showing... I'm using a computer I built in 08-09', still games like new stuff. The only real thing you need to worry about is occasionally updating the graphics card every few years. I'm using a hexacore xeon and a r9 290x. Like I said, just keep the graphics semi-up to date. As long as the rest of the build is decent you will get a good service lifetime, especially if you consider overclocking in the future.
